  1. One day I hope to follow in their distinguished footsteps and contribute to the democratic process that makes our country so great and respected (Wespected?!?!) throughout the world!!!

  2. Congrats to all alum who, having chosen to compete for elected office, represent us in the public service arena! (BTW, it is nice to see that we have the most senior elected officials in those two important “ski” states….not to discount the quality of snow in CT, MA, OH of course)

  3. Please add Josh Daniels ’04, highly accomplished math major (and baseball player) was elected to the school board in Berkeley California.

  4. Couldn’t help notice all are tax & spend Democrats.
    Sooner or later you will realize what has been promised can not be delivered. As,

    “Democracy passes into despotism”. As, “Dictatorship naturally arises out of democracy, and the most aggravated form of tyranny and slavery out of the most extreme liberty”. Plato

    Spend, Spend Spend until the country is broke, blame the capitalists and declare a dictatorship. The game plan continues..

    What will you do when you can not longer make your living off other people’s taxes?
